I saw the 114, but didn't register the 55 balls. Good work

I thought you might have awarded it to Alistair Cook for his studious 0 off 16 balls

Despite the fact the match finished late yesterday, Canada Under 19s' Arslan Khan topscored with the bat (74) and got the best figures (3-9) against Bermuda Under 19s.
